As a responsible corporate citizen, Artmatrix continually seeks to improve its environmental practices in order to protect the environment while providing essential, environmentally friendly products to our customers.
Since 2013, Artmatrix conducted Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities to align our business strategy with societal and environmental issues. We believe that by being socially responsible, we can build stronger communities, preserve and improve the environment, and sustain our long-term success in driving business results.
We strengthen our CSR values with our corporate mission – we are determined to become a design-centric organization that cares for its people and the environment. The people and environment are the heart of our operation and the key for Artmatrix to be successful as the leading office furniture provider in Malaysia. Inspired by you, we always ensure that our business is conducted in an honest, ethical and sustainable manner.
In December 2021, a massive flood hits the state of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur. Sekolah Kebangsaan Rantau Panjang which is located at Bestari Jaya, Rawang was one of the schools that were affected badly by the disaster. They had a total loss of RM 1.5 million, their books, classroom, teacher’s room, etc. was destroyed in the flood.
As a socially responsible company, Artmatrix has contacted the school via our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program to assist in the restoration of the teacher’s room by providing workstations, pedestals and our environmental friendly — Xenic chair.
Artmatrix is contributing effort as Gold Sponsor to give support and encouragement to the new generation as we believed that ideas of inspiration can be inherited. Sequence ’19 is a graduation showcase of final year degree students from Graphic Design, Interior & Architecture Design and Furniture & Product Design programmes of First City University College (FCUC). The theme “Discover Beyond Curiosity” manifests issues that are part and parcel of the creative environment. The final year students’ works are inspired by form, space, colour, imagery, typography, etc in relation to the social, economic and cultural context. The event also serves as a platform to expose future designers from FCUC to the public and to potential employers from the industry.
On 22nd September 2018, Artmatrix has participated in International Coastal Cleanup at Hibiscus Walk, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson in conjunction with International Coastal Cleanup Day. The objective of this coastal cleanup is to raise awareness on the marine debris issues and cultivate a sense of stewardship for one of our planet’s greatest natural resources. In this event, we have collected 1939.5kg of trash along the coastline and beach together with other volunteers. The trash data collected will be submitted to Ocean Conservancy for analysis to identify the sources of litter and to change the behaviours that cause pollution.
On 26th September 2015, our CSR team organized a social visit to Joy Garden Old Folks Home, Semenyih with the hope to bring cheer and happiness to the old folks. To spread our love and care to the elderly, we have prepared lunch, provide entertainment, improve their staying conditions and given away red packets to them.
In conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival which falls on the 27th of September 2015, we also celebrated the meaningful festival with the old folks to warm them up during this special day. The seniors enjoyed having various types of moon-cakes with us as well as amazed by all the lantern-decoration done at their home.
In addition, Artmatrix donated NESH Water Dispenser to provide convenience for the old folks. Previously, the old folks are required to boil water when hot water is needed. The water boiling process might be difficult for disabled old folks. Artmatrix learned about the problem and decided to provide a simpler and more convenient solution for them – the NESH Water Dispenser.
On 11th May 2013, our CSR team organized a “Greening by +50” activity at Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM). This activity aimed to improve the greenery by planting more trees and at the same time, to educate Artmatrixians on the importance of conserving Mother Nature. A total number of 30 staff participated in the tree-planting activity. We had planted a total number of 50 Pokok Kapur for this activity. As informed by the friendly staff of FRIM, our Pokok Kapur is growing healthily and is estimated to be between 0.5 to 1.3 meters tall by May 2015.
